55 players are currently in contention for an opportunity in the NRL as squads begin to take their final shape with train and trial players fighting for the last remaining spots, per The Daily Telegraph.
The Warriors have given former Roosters half Jayden Nikorima a chance to make his NRL comeback after adding the New Zealander to their pre-season program.
Nikorima was axed by the Chooks in 2017 after failing a second drug test, with his last senior match coming the year prior.
Kelly had a promising stint with both Hull side’s in the UK, scoring 63 tries from 110 games between the two clubs.
Canterbury will have eight players fighting for a 2021 roster place, including Cooper Talau, son of club great, Willie.
Another son of a Bulldogs great will also be hoping for an opportunity at the top level, but it won’t be at Belmore.
The Eels currently have no train and trial players listed as they look to prioritise their junior program pathways, while the Sea Eagles, Panthers and Rabbitohs are yet to finalise their pre-season squads.
